Goonies 2 Is Dead

Richard Donner has been a bit of a buzz-kill lately first killing Lethal Weapon 5 and now he has killed the likelihood of a Goonies sequel telling Variety that, despite his best efforts, it "simply didn't pan out."
Rumors have been swirling for years about a "Goonies" sequel, but Richard Donner says his most recent attempt simply didn't pan out. "We tried really hard, and Steven (Spielberg) said, 'Let's do it.' We had a lot of young writers submit work, but it just didn't seem to call for it," he explains.

Lately, Donner has been chasing a different spinoff idea: "I'm in the process of trying to get it done as a musical on Broadway. Wouldn't that be great?"

God damn it I have been waiting like 23 years for this film, guess I will just have to crack out the old nintendo.
